Why Should My Child Take Ballroom Dance Lessons?

In the age when virtual reality becomes prevalent, physical activity becomes more and more absent in our children's life. There's a lack of communication, lack of concentration and focusing and absence of good posture, especially in children.

Ballroom dancing is an activity that helps fight these growing negative tendencies. Taking regular dance lessons will improve your child's:

  • flexibility
  • posture
  • physical strength
  • balance
  • coordination
  • stamina
  • social skills
  • communication
  • musicality
  • and more

Dancing helps develop an important set of skills such as:

  • discipline
  • focus
  • practice
  • and devotion

which qualities your child can apply in other areas of his/her life.

Our studio offers social and competitive dance programs and we travel as a studio to different competitions in the US and Europe. We organize different yearly events including a Winter Ball in December, yearly dance competition in March and an annual Show every June at the Fair Lawn Community Center.

So call today to book your FREE trial class for your child or fill out our request form.
